    Minor Dungeon Reno..........

    .........VERY minor reno

    OK, I have run out of space in the Dungeon, this last batch of turning blanks are stuck on my worktable, and I need that space to get into the Display Humidor into gear!!.....

    OK, I need to do some re-orginization..........

    This spot is where I figure I can get the best results.......

    This is a bit of an old pic, but the main group of recycled old cabs are there, they are now gone!

    I got a whole pile of this kind of shelving a while back on the cheap! Here in Japan, this stuff is expensive.

    I'm going to just use some cardboard boxes for now, and at some point, these shelves will be moved over to the Dungeon Annex at some point.

    The Dungeon is sure a mess right now

    Cheers!

    Stu, I am always amazed at the amount of work you get done in that dungeon. The sad thing is most everyone else has the option to add on to their existing shops and you don't, yet you continue to find ways to maximize your minimum area.

    Stu, I use alot of that kind of shelving in my shop. It is strong and you can find stuff on it from any angle. Reorg is s good thing. If you find anything you do not recognize, send it over and we will help with description and use.

    I admire your working in such a small space. But it doesn't matter how much space you have you will use it all. My shop is very large but I have space problems too. Just not to extent you do.

    I am looking for a good way to store blanks too. I have a bunch stored under a conference table that was given to me. But I have decided to reclaim the space the conference table has and that means I need to do something with the blanks. No ideas at this point either. But if I could find some of that shelving like yours I know what I would do!

    Cheers!

    Stu,

    How about hanging them individually in vacant spots? I do see that you already have some items stored "high" however if there is any additional space left that would be a great place since you will not be using the blanks for a while. I would take a piece of rope... wrap it around one direction of the blank... turn and rewrap around again forming a sling. Then with just enough of a length of rope make a loop where you can hang it from a hook strategically placed on the ceiling/joist. Just be sure you tie them securely though... you wouldn't want one falling on your head... This would leave the space on the shelves free for other organization and you would still be able to freely pick and choose from the blanks as you need them.

    Not sure that would be stout enough... Heck when I get tater or onion bags home from the store I pull them apart with my fingers. Wonder what a bowl blank would do??
